The Expo, designed to inform the public about earthquakes, will kick off the museum's observance of Earthquake Preparedness Month in April.

Eleven-year-old Connie Iraheta stood in front of the hospital bed pondering a life or death decision. A man, pale and still, lay covered by a gray sheet. His destiny rested in Connie's hands. The sixth-grader read the patient's diagnosis with intensity, her eyes carefully scanning each detail. She quietly mouthed each word. "John Smith, 35-year-old comatose patient. Doctors believe he will never regain consciousness. . . . Should the tubes carrying food and water be removed, allowing him to die?"

David G. Price says his fascination with airplanes started when he was 7 years old. He lived half a block from what was then known as Clover Field and today is Santa Monica Airport. "It was during World War II and I used to go over to the field and watch the airplanes take off," says Price, 56, president of the new Museum of Flying. "My parents were from England and as a little boy, I'd dream of flying Spitfires," he recalls.

In fact, it is an institution in turmoil. For months, the museum has been embroiled in conflict. On one side are state officials who operate and oversee the facility, located in Los Angeles' Exposition Park.

As great a pitcher as Orel Hershiser is, Roger Kahn transcends that plane in his writing. The evolution of the Dodgers' pedigree, intertwined with his, was moving, and, unbeknown to the reader, tragically summarized by his own admission. It is unfortunate in this day, that society has outgrown the innocence of baseball and capitulated to the pitfalls of a screwball civilization. Roger Kahn's piece truly mirrors the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. STEVE LIEF Los Angeles

Since November, 1986, an estimated 48,000 moderate-to-serious earthquakes have rumbled across one little corner of South Los Angeles. And the level of seismic activity at the Museum of Science and Industry in Exposition Park increased even more Friday. That's because the museum's popular earthquake exhibit, which includes a quake simulator, has expanded. The free hands-on display makes it clear why and how a high-rise must wobble during a temblor so it won't fall down.
